This place is so good..we came stayed came back to it 3 times! Staff are very friendly and helpful, food is really good and the volunteers (particularly Ian) organise great bar games. Overall the place has a great atmosphere and would definitely recommend it.

Great Resort Hostel Hybrid, I have stayed here three times now and love it every time. Highlights include a wonderful pool bar and restaurant area, and fairly reliable internet facilities. There's also a great tv room and a few guest computers. Comfy hammocks and a guest kitchen too. But above all is the staff, especially Tony. Great activities too and tours. Close to most buses to Tayrona and elsewhere. Luggage storage. Perfect home base.

Fantastic hostel! Staff here are amazing. They provide you with lots of helpful information on how to get to surrounding national parks, minca, and other near by tourist places. You can leave your bags and valuables in a safe place to do overnight trips. We left our camera behind and Esther posted it to us in Medellin. She organised the whole thing and waS very helpful. The hostel has a pool to cool off in, kitchen and a supermarket near by. Also close to key bus routes!

Hostel is actually very nice... But we got disappointed by a few things. Problems with water in our room. After fixing it the toilet stopped flushing. Sh*t happens, but I would have appreciated to get some apologies. At check out we noticed our bill was incorrect as well. Some meals and drinks we didn't order were on it. After all: clean and nice hostel, but staff could have done better.

My favorite hostel so far! Great pool, bar, restaurant, rooms, and staff! Really pleasant experience. If you're planning to go into Parque Tayrona, it's a great starting and ending point and you can leave your bags there! You're going to want a good night's sleep and a pool after a few nights in the park too.

The Dreamer was a great hostel. We stayed in a deluxe private room for 2 nights (AirCon) and then a standard private for 1 night (fan only), with a trip to Parque Tayrona in between. They have a large room to store luggage if you only wanted to take a daypack on the hike (highly recommended). Not a lot to do immediately surrounding the hostel, but there are a ton of day trips/activites that can be scheduled with the front desk

Very nice chilling area. The hostel itself is located away from most things so taking a taxi is necessary. We had a very nice stay.

It is a nice place with all the luxury thing like pool and a nice place to watch movies but the basic things like showers and kitchen are not so good (almost no dishen in the kitchen, showers are really small and no place to hang clothes)

Everything was great except for some of the staff working at the reception. One guy and girl were pretty rude when one asked them questions.

Can't really fault this hostel. Only thing is that the bar and kitchen and day trips could be cheaper but with a supermarket, plenty of cheap eateries nearby and the public buses passing right by the hostel, its easy to keep to a budget.

Easily the best hostile I've ever stayed in. Helpful knowledgeable staff, good cheap food and drinks, clean, safe, and excellent activities that end at just the right time to ensure everyone gets some sleep if they need it. Highly recommended to all!

We really enjoyed staying at this hostel and came back repeatedly as we used santa marta as a base for various activities. The staff here are excellent and very helpful. The only problem was that the hostel is a little way out of town so you can just stroll in, you need to get a (cheap) taxi.
